Levelling serious allegations against SP national general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav, Etah party MLA Ashish Kumar Yadav on Thursday said the former’s son had made “some remarks” against state unit chief Shivpal Yadav’s decision to expel MLC Arvind Pratap Yadav recently. “When SP state president Shivpal Yadav expelled MLC Arvind Pratap Yadav, who is the nephew of Ram Gopal, the latter’s son and Lok Sabha MP Akshay Yadav too had made some remarks against the state party president’s decision,” Ashish said.
Ashish (30), a first-time MLA, is the son of Ramesh Yadav, the chairman of UP Legislative Council. He is also considered close to SP national president Mulayam Singh Yadav. Ashish added that he had also demanded Mulayam to inquire into his allegations.
Despite repeated attempts, Ram Gopal could not be contacted for comment.
Meanwhile, Shivpal on Thursday said all those indulging in “indiscipline” in the party would be shown the door.
“All those indulging in indiscipline and wrong practices will be shown the door… Those against whom reports were received that they were involved in land grabbing and other such deeds, have been expelled,” Shivpal, who arrived in Etawah, told mediapersons.
Asked about the leaders leaving SP following the feud in the party, he said the ruling party has been strengthened through the “parting of ways” with such leaders.
“The SP government has done a lot of good work… People are wise and will vote it back to power. Akhilesh Yadav will form the next government,” he said, adding that all was well in the party.
